Carrington featured in Gazette author profile
The German professor’s book is composed of true stories based on archival research about love in Germany at the turn of the 20th Century. Carrington spent more than a year searching through old newspapers and studying personal ads. Each day he sat at a microfilm reader in Berlin scrolling through 25 years of newspapers. Then, he turned to Berlin’s police archives, and that’s where he uncovered the story of Frieda Kliem, which ties together the chapters of his book.
